    I just bought a Savage 110 BA Stealth in 338 Lapua. I know it's not a 50 BMG, but it does have some stout recoil, so I figured someone here could point me in the right direction.
    So here's the question I have: How much bipod do you need to withstand the recoil? I have a handful of Harris bipods. I don't know if they are stout enough. If not, what is?

    I would start with the shortest one ya have. Probably best to go to a backpack if the Harris is too flimsy.
